Seattle Could Be the First City in the U.S. to Host Safe-Injection Sites for Heroin Users

Even the mayor says he’s open to the idea of providing places for people to inject under medical supervision.

    No. What an outrageously ridiculous plan this is. I can say that when you make the decision to get clean once and for all from the Hell that is drug addiction, a lot of your motivation is due to the conditions that you’ve subjected yourself to as a result of being a drug addict. You become so tired of chasing the drug on the streets and lying, cheating, sneaking, that you give in to the idea of treatment. In some cases, people don’t necessarily want to get clean from the drug, they just want to get off the street and feel safe. Providing a safe place to use makes it easier to prolong the addiction and keeps you from hitting your bottom.

    Furthermore, these “safe sites” will most definitely become locations for drug users to collaborate on sales. When a user cannot get in touch with their own dealer, they will go to these sites for a reference and/or to make a purchase from a fellow user. I’m a little shocked that this possibility has not been a point of concern, since it seems like a no brainer – a gathering spot for junkies to use will without question become a gathering spot for junkies to obtain drugs.

    Yes, having medical staff stand by as people inject themselves with poison will obviously save lives from overdose. However, this is part of the risk that you willingly take when you choose to inject yourself. How is saving a person from an overdose that you’ve just overseen a message that will lead the user to treatment? How will it provide anything other than another chance to use and overdose again as well as a false sense of security? It won’t.
